MARIO BALOTELLI will walk off the pitch if he is a target for racist yobs at Euro 2012. And the Manchester City star says he would kill anyone who throws bananas at him in Poland and Ukraine.

A BBC documentary highlighted the Euro hosts’ problems with racism and UEFA insist referees could abandon games if there is any trouble.

Italy striker Balo, 21, said: “If someone throws a banana at me in the street, I will go to prison because I will kill him.

“Racism is unacceptable to me, I cannot bear it. I hope there will not be a problem at the Euros because if it does happen I would straight away leave the pitch and go home.

“We are in 2012, it can’t happen.”

Balotelli, 21, was subjected to racist abuse from fans during City’s Europa League tie with Porto in February.

But he had it much worse during his days at Inter Milan back in 2009 when he had bananas thrown at him during a match.

Balotelli told France Football: “These two or three lads were lucky the police came straight away because, I swear, I would have given them a proper kicking. I would have destroyed them.

“I hope that doesn’t happen again.”

Another incident in Italy occurred when Balotelli was on the receiving end of abuse from Juventus fans.

He said: “I remember it well because I scored a goal.

“Occasionally, you’re so good that people can’t think of any other way to make you angry. They think the only way to play badly is to provoke you.

“I had to pretend that I hadn’t seen anything because I wanted to play.

“I was young. It was up to me to tell the referee. But if I had told the referee to stop the match I wouldn’t have scored.”
